The new Somnium Prodigy headless guitar gives you a full-size body with a headless neck for fantastic balance. With an alder body and maple neck, it features our patented ToneStorm hot-swap system with machined aluminum pickup cartridges. This allows you to change out any pickup, anytime simply by snapping a cartridge in or out, with any make or model pickup, active or passive. One guitar, infinite possibilities.
The tuning bridge and string lock are top-notch Hipshot USA low-profile hardware and the beveled body cavity behind the bridge provides easy access for your fingers to get at the tuners. It will take a bit of getting used to using your strumming hand to do the tuning, but you will love the more compact size without worrying about hitting your headstock on something on stage. Although the Prodigy is available in any color you like, this one is Iridescent Blue which changes from blue to purple to greenish-blue depending on the angle you view it from. If you think that looks cool in the photos, wait until you see it in person!
An amazing and exclusive feature of this model is the R66 variable-gain active humbucking pickup. This baby is hexaphonic which means that each string has its own pair of coils for unparalleled clarity and definition. An on-board amplifier (which you control with our third knob) lets you go from a powerful clean tone to a hard dirty overdrive, and that's on a clean channel! Use it to pump up your amp's own distortion to new levels, or to push your guitar to the front when soloing. These are capabilities other pickups simply can't match.
Standard features include:
- 24 medium-jumbo nickel-silver frets, 25.5" scale, 12" radius
- TUSQ XL nut, 1-11/16" width, Epiphone spacing
